    First EMMA competition...

    Had the first EMMA SQ competition with the coupe today down at Auto Audio in London. (for those in the know I was in Experienced Unlimited class)

    I was the second car of the day to be judged, was pooping my pants

    I won't know the results until tomorrow but both the sound and installation judging went very well.

    Scored highly on sound. The only issues raised we're fairly minor, sound stage is a little too narrow, tweeters are touch too bright, midbass could do with boosting so it doesn't rely on being helped along by the sub-bass.

    Installation was faultless I believe, however I was given a few tips to help improve it for Sinsheim as the competition will be tougher so every little will help make a difference.

    Some piccies from todays classes:

    That thing does indeed look like a heavily modified Nissan 350z with a Rolls Royce Phantom inspired front end. Impressive, but hideous.

    Looks like an interesting event

    Thought it might have been but I wasn't sure of the name

    The guy that runs the place is a great guy willing to help you out and I had one of their installs in at work on a Aston Martin that was definatly the business
